WP4 - Optimal framework conditions and increasing coordination in policies and programmes


This WP supports the introduction of optimal framework conditions to the EaP countries and puts emphasis on increasing coordination in policies and programmes between the EU MS and EaP countries. In particular, a policy development framework was strengthened by the realisation of two dedicated trainings for informing and coaching STI policymakers and stakeholders from EaP countries. Moreover, desk research explored cooperation with JPIs, COST actions and national programmes in view of an increased coordination and synergies between policies and programmes of EU/MS and EaP countries.
